- Which part of the world do you intend to study in? (UK, Aus, NZ = IELTS; Canada, US = TOEFL) While all of these countries now accept both tests to some extent, there will be more college/uni options depending on which test you have taken
- Speaking: if you do better in face-to-face interview situations, IELTS is definitely a better test to be taking
Thanks a lot,
now I’ve got more bright thought about TOEFL and IELTS. I’ll take the Toefl because:
1) I would like going to north America for job, so I need North America accent;
2) For the writing part I prefere TOEFL because I type on computer faster than on paper;
Finally, I think that IELTS is better on speaking and is easier.
Thanks very much! I think it is very interesting and helpful video for all.
Yes I think that IELTS more easier if you know British English and the TOEFL easier if you good at American English. Now I’m preparing both of them and for me IELTS is more easier to understand!
Hello. According to a source, it is possible to substitute the scores of one for the other depending on your part of the world and which exam is available. For instance, a friend of mine got in for a masters degree at a school in UK but she was told that she could/should take the TOEFL. Is that right? She actually had the IELTS option but wasn’t enlightened about which one to take and eventually she was advised to go to the British Council for proper inquiries where she received authentic information.
My question is: Can TOEFL/IELTS scores be substituted for one another?
